Riding the Munda Biddi Trail from the coalfields of Collie to the orchards of Donnybrook sees my ticking off a section end-to-end of the Trail. My ride of the Trail from Collie to Donnybrook in November 2013 was the final ride in my effort to complete a section end-to-end of the Munda Biddi Trail. I first road the Mundaring to Collie section back in April 2008 when that was all there was of the Trail, and then I attempted to complete the Nannup to Collie section in July 2011 but only made Donnybrook. In July 2013 I headed off again to ride from Albany to Collie but only made Donnybrook! This time I have started in Collie riding to Donnybrook; I am not letting Donnybrook jinx me again!
Munda Biddi Trail end-to-end once again not to be. Now that the Munda Biddi Trail is “completed” from Mundaring to Albany the opportunity was there for me to tick off an end-to-end by completing the Albany to Collie section and hence I headed off in July 2013 with this in mind. Alas the Munda Biddi Trail was to once again foil my plans at Donnybrook and I still have yet to complete the last two days of riding between Donnybrook and Collie. I completed the Mundaring to Collie section in April 2008 and previously rode from Nannup to Donnybrook in July 2011 but still have this short section between Donnybrook and Collie to complete.
This blog post is about my ride of the Munda Biddi Trail from Albany to Donnybrook in July 2013 and is also a bit of an overview of the Trail in this area.
